Full Description

docker-run

update packages or execute arbitrary commands inside running docker containers

When running multiple containers, updating the packeges, including security updates, in all of them can be a painful task.

docker-run can be used to issue any arbitrary command on all running containers or a specified subset.

Quick use: docker run --rm -v /var/run/docker.sock:/tmp/docker.sock itech/docker-run exec

By default exec will execute date command in all running containers

-

Usage

The easiest way to use it is to create an alias, so you just execute docker-run directly as a regural command

alias docker-run='docker run --rm -v /var/run/docker.sock:/tmp/docker.sock itech/docker-run'

If connecting to docker daemon over http you can specify the docker daemon host:port

alias docker-run='docker run --rm itech/docker-run --host http://127.0.0.1:4243'

--

Examples

assumig you have the alias

  • docker-run exec "uname -a"
    display the kernel in each container

  • docker-run update
    will update packages (only debian/ubuntu containers at the moment)

  • docker-run update -p python
    will only update python package

  • docker-run -c db1,db2 update postgresql
    only update the postgresql package on container db1 and db2 containers with these names must exist

  • docker-run -c my_centos exec "yum update -y"
    will update a container names 'my_centos'

  • docker-run exec "date +'%Y-%m-%d' && uname -r"
    example of running multiple commands with different parameter for each
